NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Tim Tebow may one day take his Wildcat offense to another field entirely: politics.
The most talked about player in football said in an interview that once hes done with football hell at least look at and consider one day a run for office.
I havent ruled it out. Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, Id love to do, the Jets backup quarterback told ESPN New York. I havent ruled out anything like that. It wont be anytime soon in my future, but itll be something Ill at least look at and consider one day.
It would be awesome to see Tebow run for national office after he wins four or five Super Bowls, wins several MVP Awards and retires from the NFL.
The guy is like 24 years old. Why would he rule out anything at this stage?
How about playing NFL quarterback for a winning season first?
How about being a starter first?? Lol...
Bet Tebow will win more games in his career than Ponder does.
As qb? Bet you a dollar??
Ok, one dollar. ;)
Now, if Ponder leaves Minnesota for a better team, all bets are off.
My son and I were talking about him the other day. He is really good at turning around the insults of sneering and mean people in sports and he’s good at foiling their efforts to create destructive divisions among him and other players.
He has enough social grace for twenty five elected officials in Congress. I don’t know how good he’d be at lying and permitting secret treasonous schemes, though. The Dims would not want him because he’s not a commie slut so he’d probably be one of our’s.
Ponder will join the pantheon of other Clown College NFL QB greats..oh wait..
Last year He almost took Denver all the way to the Super Bowl, but the Eco Liberals in Denver could not stand to see a solid Christian leading their team and they had him cut from the roster.
Sure. He’s got the right morals, he’s a natural leader, we need more folks like him. 77.56% (7,401 votes)
No way. I don’t even want him on the Jets! No ‘Tebowing’ your way into office! 7.63% (728 votes)
Maybe. It depends on his positions. 14.81% (1,413 votes)
How many games did he win last year?
I’m a huge Tim Tebow fan. Very fascinating person.
On Sunday, Mark Sanchez played like a man possessed. With Eva Longario. His mind was in another place.
Hey.... Ponder would make as good of a politician as Tebow. Both fine young men. While at FSU, Ponder received a bachelors in finance, an MBA, and a Masters in Sports Management. 3.73 GPA..
Do you believe that? That it had nothing to do with football?
I am sooooo tired of hearing about Tim Tebow..... just another overpaid, spoiled brat.. move along folks, nothing here.
Fwiw, I think he has a better win percentage with the Broncos than Manning................:-)
He may never be a great NFL QB, but one thing is for sure, Tebow is nothing but a winner wherever he's been. His old team mates will all say that about him.
Enough to lead his team to the AFC Playoffs and defeat Pittsburgh..
How many games was that? So he must be leading the Jets today?
I agree, he’s a fine young man with a giant heart.
But this pre-coronation is a bit much.
I don't quite understand either extreme, the Tebow haters, or those who find him the greatest athlete ever.
He's still young, seemingly has his head on straight for a pro athlete, and has accomplished a lot already.
I’m a big Tebow fan, have been since he was a Gator QB leading championship teams.
But lets see some more NFL football before we decide if he should be canonized a a saint or appointed Presidet for Life first.
He should start by learning how to pass. Then he can worry about the future.
Playing the Steelers will do that, but let’s see, how did Tebow do the last time he played the Steelers.
I think Tebow in the lockeroom is a good thing, even his Freshman year at UF, when Chris Leak was the starter, Tebow as still a big factor in them winning the National Championship that year.
Unfortunately for Tim, he was made to play for the Jets who represent New York City and the New York City market is dominated by Secularists, Gays, Liberals and foregniers who would not stand for a real American like Tebow playing for their team.
Instead, they have chosen this Sanchez fella.
7-4 in regular season
1-1 in playoffs
You mean like taking over a 1 and 4 team, turning them around, finish the season 8 and 8, going to the play offs and winning the first play off game against one of the toughest defenses?
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Uhhh no. Last year he made a team 8-8, won 1 of what have been a necessary 3 games to get to the Superbowl, and then got crushed like a grape by the conferences eventual SB representative. And they got rid of him because when you get a chance to get rid a terrible QB you do it, and when you get a chance to replace him with a first ballot hall of famer you do it FAST.
He’s a nice guy, but on the field he’s Kordell Stewart, has enough QB skills to be useful as a gadget player, but not enough to be a starter.
“...when you get a chance to get rid a terrible QB you do it, and when you get a chance to replace him with a first ballot hall of famer you do it FAST.”
How many interceptions did that first ballot Hall of Famer throw in his last game?
Happens. Even great QBs have crappy days. The difference between a Manning and a Tebow is the percentage. Let’s also not forget if the Broncos defense had pulled one more stop they probably win that game.
and they had him cut from the roster.
He was traded, genius, not cut. Big difference.
Sure. He’s got the right morals, he’s a natural leader, we need more folks like him.

One word... DORK.
“How about playing NFL quarterback for a winning season first?”
Unfortunately, that’s not gonna happen. I’ve watched every game Tebow has played in the NFL, and his quarterbacking skills are pretty poor and haven’t improved very much.
While his execrable throwing skills have shown some improvement, he’s completely failed at every other aspect of the position. He doesn’t have a clue how to read a defense, and even worse, he has no idea in the world how to look over his field of receivers, no idea how to head fake, etc. The best Tebow can usually do is look the entire time at the one and only receiver he’s decided to throw to in advance and if he’s not open either throw the ball away or scramble for short yardage. And the really bad part of that is that he’s shown zero improvement in those particular skills. Quite frankly, it looks to me like Tebow isn’t very smart.
I love Tebow. He’s half my age but inspires me.
